Emo Wants the World to Respect Jersey Graffiti
Seeing loud and energetic pieces pull up on gleaming metal trains is a rare sight in the US nowadays. While painting trains is a concept born in The Bronx, these days it’s more ubiquitous in Europe and other countries outside the States. There are some heads still putting in low-key work here in the States, but most writers keep their flicks close and away from prying public eyes, since laws can be draconian and repercussions severe. Occasionally people post their own work online, but generally the scene is kept pretty quiet.
The Jersey Fresh Jam is New Jersey’s premiere Hip Hop festival. Since 2005, the event has grown from a small, humble event into one the most respected celebrations of Hip Hop culture on the east coast. At the twilight of every summer, aerosol artists from far and wide converge to adorn the walls of Terracycle INC with their signature masterpieces, while local and regionally known emcees, bands, and DJs provide the soundtrack for the days festivities. This event is free and open to the public. Come and share the excitement! Drone footage graciously provided by Seahage
It’s been a busy summer for me, but glad I got a chance to squeeze in a quick session at the annual Arts on Division event in Somerville, NJ. Gotta give a big shout out to Jerome and the whole Arts on Division team. Had a great time gettin’ down with the homies BrainPaste, Mimik, Cuzo, Jenna Morello, Rain, Gent and others.

I haven’t kept a traditional graffiti black book in YEARS! I still draw and sketch just to experiment with letters, but don’t really put in the detail work that a good blackbook really demands. Anyway, I had fun rocking this book for the homie, Die Slow. I might have to go back to my roots and break out the markers more often. Check it out!
